The O's returned to pre-season training on July 1 and the squad have recently undergone a vo2 max test which measures how fit each player actually is.
"The test was hard work," said forward Ryan Jarvis to leytonorient.com after his workout at the University of East London.
"Just the second day back training and we're back with a bang, but it's all good.
"The lads were running over the close season and we're all pretty fit.
"This shows what kind of level everybody's at, so the gaffer has a good idea of how far we can push ourselves through the pre-season.
"Football is a physical game and if you're quick you have a big advantage.
"If you work hard at this time of year and get as fit and as strong as you can it will definitely stand you in good stead.
